A scathing new Pentagon report blames Trump for the return of ISIS in Syria and Iraq

A report from the Pentagon inspector general found that President Donald Trump's decision to rapidly pull troops out of Syria and divert attention from diplomacy in Iraq has inadvertently aided the Islamic State's regrouping in Syria and Iraq.

The Department of Defense's quarterly report to Congress on the effectiveness of the US Operation Inherent Resolve mission said that "ISIS continued its transition from a territory-holding force to an insurgency in Syria, and it intensified its insurgency in Iraq" — even though Trump said ISIS was defeated and the caliphate quashed, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Many officials and experts have repeatedly warned that a rapid US withdrawal from Syria would enable ISIS to regroup into an insurgency after their battlefield defeats by the US-led coalition.

1. "Scathing"? Was it "blistering" too? What about "bombshell"? Were "anonymous sources" quoted?

Did it lay out in detail how Trump is "asleep at the wheel"? Are his generals "dumbfounded"? Do the "news" media really think people are this "stupid" to not see thier "bias" these days?

Maybe it's just thier liberal, leftist readers the think are that stupid. THAT I'd believe.

4. Sorry, but you could flood Syria (or another Middle East shithole)

with the military of every non-muslim country on Earth, and ISIS (or whatever the deranged, medieval, barbarians want to call themselves this week) will just pop up like roaches in some other dusty shithole over there. Their cult DEMANDS that these idiots kill all non-muslims. Islam is an infectious disease, and must be eradicated. Of course, the squeamish among us will never do that. It would require the outlawing of the cult, and the extermination of all of its followers. Yeah, I know, not ALL muslims are terrorists. If only 10% of them are, thats still 160 million murderous terrorists threatening everyone else. The "good" muslims tacitly endorse the murderers simply by BEING PART OF THE CULT! Kill them all. Let "Allah" sort them out.

But, that's just me.

5. Get our troops out

Let Iraq and Syria deal with it on their own.

We could stay there for 100 years and as soon as we leave, ISIS or something similar would pop up.
